  • Tim Kaine’s ratings: those who like him don’t like America

    The Coach's Team ^ | 7/26/16 | Kevin "Coach" Collins
    When Hillary Clinton said Tim Kaine is everything Donald Trump and Mike Pence are not she swerved into the truth. A quick look at everything she and Tim Kaine represent proves she is right although not in the sense that she meant. Here is a list of the groups and organizations that like and don’t like Democrat Vice Presidential nominee Tim Kaine. As a Democrat the putative Catholic Kaine gets his requisite 100% rating from the baby murderers at Planned Parenthood; and the Wildlife crowd (animals are always more important to Democrats than actual people) gave Kaine a 91%.

    You won't need an astrologer to see the future if Hillary Clinton becomes president. You can just take the anger, backstabbing and blame-gaming at the Democratic Convention and repeat - for four years. Another email scandal, another FBI investigation, all laced with wild conspiracy theories about Russian hackers helping Donald Trump and with a victim card always at the ready. Hillary played one early, telling "60 Minutes" that she's widely distrusted only because lots and lots of bad people say untrue things about her. Where to begin with that one? Ah, it's the Clintons, and only the details are new,...

    AT LEAST one person has been killed and 12 more are injured after a Syrian asylum seeker blew himself outside a wine bar in Germany. The attack took place in Ansbach, near Nuremburg, after the 27-year-old was denied access to the nearby Ansbach Open music festival, according to Germany's interior minister Joachim Herrmann. Hermann said the suspect, who was known to police, had lived in Germany for two years but was denied asylum in the country a year ago. He said it is unclear if the suspect intended to kill others or just himself but said he had “tried to...

    On July 25, the Democratic National Convention will begin in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. To commensurate the event and its embrace of corrupt politician Hillary Clinton as the Democratic nominee, Wikileaks is releasing thousands of DNC/Clinton emails. In its recent leak of 20,000 DNC emails from January 2015 to May 2016, DNC staff discuss how to deal with Bernie Sanders’ popularity as a challenge to Clinton’s candidacy. Instead of treating Sanders as a viable candidate for the Democratic ticket, the DNC worked against him and his campaign to ensure Clinton received the nomination. One email from DNC deputy communications director Eric Walker...

On August 1st, the state’s campus carry law goes into effect, allowing individuals with a concealed carry license to carry a firearm in all 4 year colleges and universities throughout the state. University of Texas professors Lynn Glass, Lisa Moore and Mia Carter decided to file a lawsuit, asking for an injunction to prevent the law going into effect.

    All available evidence suggests that when Micah Johnson sniped police officers in downtown Dallas on Thursday, he intended it as a political act. During the ensuing standoff, he told police negotiators that he was angry about the recent apparently unwarranted killings of black men by police, and “stated he wanted to kill white people, especially white officers,” according to Dallas Police Chief David Brown. Johnson could not have reasonably believed that he’d shoot enough cops to actually diminish the capacity of law enforcement agencies to unjustifiably kill black people. He did it to send a message, to arbitrarily terrorize cops...

In the first five months of 2016, someone was shot every 2Âą/â‚‚ hours and someone murdered every 14 hours, for a total of nearly 1,400 nonfatal shooting victims and 240 fatalities. Over Memorial Day weekend, 69 people were shot, nearly one per hour, dwarfing the previous yearÂ’s tally of 53 shootings over the same period. The violence is spilling over from the cityÂ’s gang-infested South and West sides into the downtown business district; even Lake Shore Drive has seen drive-by shootings and robberies.

He explains the identifying markers of the Cosmopolitan tribe, i.e., what makes them different from the nationalist tribe (among them: their “out group” is Evangelical Christians). Douthat says there’s not necessarily anything wrong with this. A propensity for tribalism is part of human nature.

    The rise of Yiannopoulos can help to explain the rise of Donald Trump. Both have attracted followers that feel silenced, ignored, and invalidated by the left. Both will continue to receive sympathy and exposure if their opponents continue to aggressively and instinctually dismiss their views. And perhaps both can be defeated—or at least weakened—through respectful and empathic discourse. More broadly, the story of Yiannopoulos is useful to understand today’s political climate. There is an ever-growing number of Americans—liberals and conservatives—who feel like their voices are not being heard. Americans are increasingly identifying with their party, race, gender, or sexuality—and are...

In his ruling, Judge Barry G. Williams rejected the prosecution’s claim that the officer, Caesar R. Goodson Jr., had given Mr. Gray a “rough ride” in the van, intentionally putting him at risk for an injury by taking a wide turn while Mr. Gray was not secured with a seatbelt. “The court...

    While the French were fighting for what turned out to be a false equality through government control, Americans were fighting to obtain and hold on to unrestricted opportunity and freedom from government control To today’s liberal leftists, equality means taking from those who have abundance and transferring it to those in lack.

As a sociologist, I was struck not by the abrupt shift to a new moral crisis, but by the continuity. Sociologists look for the bigger picture, and in my mind, Mateen’s crime didn’t displace Turner’s.

Immediately the mainstream media and government and law enforcement officials have as their top priority of protecting Islam from criticism or scrutiny. Their kneejerk response to every jihad massacre is to regard Muslims as its victims, rather than scrutinize the motivating ideology of the killers. Instead of making sure no one thinks ill of Islam, they should be asking what it is about Islam that makes these jihad massacres keep happening.

    Unfortunately it took a scandalous retraction three years later to admit it as the study's authors originally reported that the results indicated that conservatives had psychotic personality traits and liberals had traits associated with high social desirability.  This much-touted research study in fact revealed just the opposite: The authors regret that there is an error in the published version of “Correlation not Causation: The Relationship between Personality Traits and Political Ideologies” American Journal of Political Science 56 (1), 34–51. The interpretation of the coding of the political attitude items in the descriptive and preliminary analyses portion of the manuscript was...

    Hoo-wee, the New York Times will really have to extend itself to top the boner and mother-of-all-corrections at the American Journal of Political Science... The authors regret that there is an error in the published version of “Correlation not Causation: The Relationship between Personality Traits and Political Ideologies” American Journal of Political Science 56 (1), 34–51.

The erroneous results represented some of the larger correlations between personality and politics ever reported; they were reported and interpreted, repeatedly,...

    Speaking at a judicial conference in D.C. on Thursday night, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren unleashed one of her strongest attacks yet on presumptive GOP nominee and "wannabe tyrant" Donald Trump over his rhetoric on judges -- and his troubles over Trump University. "Donald Trump is a loud, nasty, thin-skinned fraud who has never risked anything for anyone and serves no one but himself," she told members of the American Constitution Society. "And that is just one of the many reasons why he will never be President of the United States."

    Remember the time a presidential candidate suggested that Gandhi used to run “a gas station down in St. Louis.” No it wasn’t Trump. That was Hillary Clinton. Had Trump said it, we would still be hearing about it. But since Hillary Clinton was responsible for it, it went down the memory hole. Along with her more recent “Colored People Time” gag.

    The Left is fond of smearing those who do not share their value system as "fascist." The latest target is the current 'presumptive' GOP Presidential nominee. To the Left, "fascist" is a buzzword for an implied, undefined "evil." In fact, fascism is a definable political ideology that has an extensively documented history, in theory and practice. Fascism is a left-wing ideology; a bundling of trade-union syndicalism, futurism and statist collectivism. Fascists hold that private property can only be tolerated so long as it serves the public via its agent, the State. That most certainly is not a conservative principle, is...

    In a 9-page letter dated yesterday and posted to his blog, Ortel calls the Clintons’ charity the “largest unprosecuted charity fraud ever attempted,” adding for good measure that the Clinton Foundation is part of an “international charity fraud network whose entire cumulative scale (counting inflows and outflows) approaches and may even exceed $100 billion, measured from 1997 forward.” Ortel lists 40 potential areas of fraud or wrongdoing that he plans to expose over the coming days.

    Hillary Clinton has a “Jekyll and Hyde” personality that left White House staffers scared stiff of her explosive — and even physical — outbursts, an ex-Secret Service officer claims in a scathing new tell-all. Gary Byrne, who was posted outside the Oval Office when Bill Clinton was president, portrays Hillary as too “erratic, uncontrollable and occasionally violent” to become leader of the free world, according to advance promotional materials exclusively obtained by Page Six. The allegations from Byrne, a 29-year veteran of the military and federal law enforcement, threaten to derail her campaign days before she is expected to clinch...

    Conservatives care about logic. Liberals care about emotion. Conservatives care about whether a program works or not. Liberals care about how supporting a program makes them feel. Conservatives take the positions they do because they believe they’re best for society. Liberals take the positions they do because they make them feel and look compassionate or superior to hold those positions. Once you understand those basics, it’s very easy to see why both sides hold the positions they do on most issues and to comprehend why there’s so little middle ground. Once you get the mentalities, you can predict where each...

    Playing the role of Judas Goat, leading people to be oppressed in the name of liberalism worked just fine for Maya Dillard Smith right up until it was her daughters who were asked to accept deep voiced men in their lady’s room. Backing every socially destructive scheme the ACLU could conjure up was a comfortable way of life for Smith, who was the interim director of a Georgia ACLU chapter. Making landlords rent to newly released vicious prison inmates, forcing employers to hire incompetent lazy and counter productive workers and forcing “Heather Has Two Mommies” type books onto 2nd grade...
  • The cash donations Hillary simply has no answer for (weapons deals with WMD?)

    Among all the rivers of money that have flowed to the Clinton family, one seems to raise the biggest national security questions of all: the stream of cash that came from 20 foreign governments who relied on weapons export approvals from Hillary Clinton’s State Department. Federal law designates the secretary of state as “responsible for the continuous supervision and general direction of sales” of arms, military hardware and services to foreign countries. In practice, that meant that Clinton was charged with rejecting or approving weapons deals — and when it came to Clinton Foundation donors, Hillary Clinton’s State Department did...
